Located in what will become the park’s World Celebration area, Creations Shop replaces Mouse Gear, Epcot’s former main gift shop. The new store features a “sleek design” with plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows to allow natural light to come in.
Inside, the store is divided into sections with signage labeling the different departments: toys, kids, accessories, mugs, tees, etc. The lineup of merchandise includes the usual fare of hats, T-shirts, spirit jerseys, tumblers, snacks and more.
A new line of merchandise called the Epcot Light & Color Collection also debuted and is exclusive to Creations Shop. The line includes bags, Minnie ears, hats and mugs inspired by Epcot.
There’s also artwork featuring Mickey Mouse throughout the store. Large Mickey Mouse murals have been placed behind the registers at either end of the store. Mickey Mouse statues are also on display, each with a different design and color scheme.
Just next door to Creations Shop is Club Cool, which has settled in a new location. The old Club Cool closed in 2019 and was located Future World West. The building was torn down as part of Epcot’s transformation.

The new Club Cool is stocked with Cola-Cola branded merchandise as well as samples of Coca-Cola from around the world. The soda lineup has changed, but the Beverly flavor is back. Other flavors available to try include Bon Bon Anglais (Madagascar), Country Club Merengue (Dominican Republic), Minute Maid Joy Apple Lychee (Korea), Royal Wattamelon (Philippines), Smart Sour Plum (China), Sprite Cucumber (Russia), and Viva Raspberry (Moldova).
Creations Shop and Club Cool are the latest changes that have debuted at Epcot. The park is undergoing a multi-year transformation that includes new attractions, restaurants and shows. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in the France pavilion and the nighttime spectacular “Harmonious” will debut Oct. 1, when Disney World kicks off its 50th anniversary celebration.
